Hi,
We have another problem. I'm trying to upload a zipped file to replace a bad one. I get 95% done and it times out. This has happened at least 5 times. Never had this problem before. What could be the matter?

Hi,

How big is the file, what method are you using to upload it, and what is the item?

Alexis

They are about 5-600 gigs and I'm trying to upload them using archive.org's ftp. It's OTRR Certified Richard Diamond.
I have had no problem in the past uploading these files. It's just now started.

How long is the upload taking? If it's taking more than 48 hours, you'll be running into a time limit from us - we cut off all FTP sessions after 48 hours.

The easy way around this is to interrupt your upload when you're getting close to it and check the item in.

Then, check the item back out, and "resume" your upload in your FTP client. It will remember where you left off in uploading the file and start over from there.
